Examples Of The Civil Rights Movement

Satisfactory Essays

These are only two examples in American history of brave individuals coming together to fight a larger cause. The Civil Rights movement led by Martin Luther King Jr. in the 1950’s-60’s is a great example of the minority banding together to fight an injustice in the system. Even earlier in American history was the Revolutionary War, where only 3% of Americans actively fought against the British empire, and they won. In the end, these two instances of rebellion against all odds showcase how important it is for individuals to take matters into their own hands and do what they think is right. Sometimes it’s not always the most important choice, sometimes it’s not always the smartest choice, but it is always the best choice.
